St Euthymius the Confessor, Bishop of Sardis.

Commemorated December 26 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

He took part in the Seventh Ecumenical Council, and spent about thirty years in exile for his veneration of icons. Under the Emperor Theophilus the Iconoclast, he was flogged with bull-whips, during which he died a martyr in 840 and received a wreath of glory in heaven.
